I submitted this as my final in high school for Japanese, so all the voices are done by me. To all you native speakers - please excuse my awkward intonations. :)

Music from FFV and FFT, sound effects from various Genesis games.

P.S - Sorry, I don't intend to make this into a series. I'd rather not continue something I feel is complete.
Also, for those of you interested, Pensuke's victory cheer is "Yahho, watashi wa kattaze~!"

FAQ's:

1) What grade did you get for this?
- I recieved maximum credit for the final and aced the class.

2) How long did this take you?
- The project took about 2-3 weeks, with breaks only for eating, sleeping, and school, so it was actually a good many hours. I actually couldn't finish by the end of the semester, and had to get a deadline extension.

3) How did you do all those voices?
- Sound Forge was used to alter some of the voices. There is no way I could make my voice as low as Ramuh's or as warbly as Cid's. Others like Ryu-sensei's were attained through raw, painful effort.

4) What kind of class makes you do these things for a final?!
- The original assignment was to present an oral autobiography. I requested special permission to make a movie. My teacher isn't anything like the one depicted in this title - she's actually a good-natured woman.

5) Will you make a game of this?
- I might. It's looking pretty bleak, though. If I do produce one, it'd probably be in the fashion of FF Tactics (or FFV) and follow Pensuke to Sabaku University. Go Sabotenders~!

6) Why don't you make a sequel of this?
- I've seen enough titles go bad because the producers made sequels to please the crowd. Games, on the other hand, are a different story.

7) Can you teach me Japanese?
- Nope; I'm a student, not a teacher. If you're desperate enough, you can try looking for free online lessons or something. They're bound to be there.

Learning Curve! LOL

Wow, that was some pretty hilarious shit. The graphics and sound were far out, even though some of the spell/attack effects could have used some major work. The movie seems to be paying homage to the original FF, which is a good thing (I'd rather play that over, say, FFVII.. ack). It was also very high quality for a Flash movie. I've seen too many crappy "films" lately, so this was pretty refreshing. On a completely different subject, I always assumed that the white mage was supposed to be female... ah well. I guess you can name it anything you want.

Overall, the school theme kicked ass, even though I hated school, and mixing things like that together with classic FF equals a must-see experience! So says Dr. Manhattan...

A masterpiece... A+

People who aren't fans of Final Fantasy probably don't appreciate this to it's full extent though.

This is one of the best flash moives I have ever seen! What really put it over the to was the voice acting (In real japanese that ppl studying the language can understand!) but the art and humor were excellent too! I hope we see more of this calibur work on the portal!
